We had just arrived in Palm Springs and Spencer's seemed like a classic place to stop for brunch. The location and ambiance is just magical with the beautiful trees that provide a natural canopy for the outdoor dining patio. Service was excellent, staff was attentive and friendly. As we looked around at the clientele we felt a little out of... More

Beautiful dining experience. Nestled in the foothills this Palm Springs restaurant is sure to please. From the piano player to the last morsel you will be pleased. If you go for lunch and want outside seating be sure to get there early or have reservations. Otherwise you may be in for a long long wait. Wife had eggs Benedict with... More

Loved this cool little old Palm Springs spot.. Food was great! Best Calamari ever! The bar is a bit of a throw back, which makes Spencer's a great little spot to visit while in PS..

We (4) had reservations in the beautiful courtyard but arrived early and decided to wait at the bar and have a cocktail. There was a small Happy Hour menu which featured 1/2 price appetizers. It really looked good so after our perfectly prepared Martinis, and wine for the girls were delivered we ordered a few munchies to share. We had... More

I have been to Spencer's several times since I live in Palm Springs. When I have out-of-town visitors or want to go for a meal that I know the food will always be good, I never hesitate to go to Spencer's. Today was no exception. Ambiance excellent (we sat on the outdoor patio area), food and service also excellent. The... More

Staff was pleasant with great service. We started with the shrimp cocktail which is served on a plate because they are huge!! ( I have never seen shrimp this size). My wife had the lobster tails (2- 8oz) which were cooked perfectly and 1 was probably 12 oz. i had the Rib-Eye (20 oz) with sauteed mushrooms . The steak... More

This is a first class restaurant. The setting is nice, at the end of a quite residential road and surrounded by gardens. The seating can be outdoors or indoors but even if indoors the large glass windows can be slid open. The menu is interesting and our food (fish) was excellent. The waiter was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient - all... More

Our food was very good and Paco was such a good waiter. The bartender was rude and thought the world of himself! Nice atmosphere but don't arrive early and have a drink at the bar! Have a drink somewhere else before you arrive!
